The presented system is used where the counteracting unauthorized imitations of branded mung, each brand products can be distinguished by a tamperproof identification code of a data carrier by a plagiarism. The control system local provides the arrangement of data carriers with at least manufacturer-specific data as an identification code to each article, which are at any time and as often as desired, in particular of customers and customers with equipment for data acquisition and computer-aided data processing verifiable and optionally controlled variable. As disk RF transponder modules, as well as magnetic stripe cards or smart cards can be used.

In one embodiment, the teaching of DE 43 41 880 Al there is a possibility of analysis of sales transactions or other transfer of the brand that the data of the identification code are read out at data acquisition devices and stored as a control code in a central computer. In a sale or at a transition of the article, the identity is checked by the identification code of the data carrier is read with an external data acquisition device that operates without contact and in particular compared with the stored in the central computer control code. The manufacturer-specific data can be expanded in such a manner that a bar code or an OCR code of a conventional label or tag with the identification code of the electronic data carrier by a combined reading device are simultaneously and nearly parallel read out by data during shipping, delivery, accounting and sales , Further, a write protection for the entire storage area or a defined area of ​​the memory of the electronic data carrier can be activated to prevent unwanted tampering. From DE 30 24 068 Al an apparatus for the storage and transmission of information is known, which is composed of an encoder, a portable memory and at least one decoder. With this device, information storage and should be routable through which ensured or confirms that certain activities or actions were carried out. For this purpose, for example in a production device provided to install multiple encoder at key points along the path of the security personnel, each encoder includes a special classification of existing permanent magnets which identify its certain position. The guards used a memory module, bringing the housing of the memory module with the patrol in succession with the respective on-premise encoders in contact. About special reed switch readout existing in the encoder by arranging the magnets information then takes place. This information is then stored in the memory module by means of an electronic memory device. the way the guards can then be subsequently persecuted or checked by reading the data in the electronic memory.

An electronic ID tag is known, for example, from US 5,469,363, WO at the data transmission between a programming reader and a corresponding memory block inductively, ie without contact takes place.

Although all of the aforementioned devices and methods allow one or more times storing certain, for example, product-specific data, which can be read for control purposes in a suitable way, but can not be checked whether products thus marked, matters and / or items according to the manufacturer's specifications or predetermined were further processing instructions treated or transported, which for example can result in foods that are to be transported over a closed cold chain, to serious problems men for the final consumer.

It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a further developed method for product-related documentation and / or marking and for subsequent identification of portable objects or objects of a contactlessly writable and provide readable data carrier using, wherein it should be possible to subsequently or of production or transport stage check to transport stage whether the supplier or end producers predetermined conditions, such as temperature or pressure loads, have been complied with, so that polluters can be identified, for example, insurance companies and ultimately protect the consumer and the product quality is assured.

The object of the invention is achieved with a method according to defini- tion according to claim 1, wherein the sub-claims comprise at least expedient embodiments and developments.

According to the invention, a contactlessly writable disk is used not only for storing product-characterizing data, but the memory or the data carrier is connected, which in a programmable manner, after leaving a particular production or manufacturing stage and / or upon reaching a final manufacturing step with a sensor data, for example to provide tamper-proof ambient conditions for a predetermined time, wherein the values ​​detected by the sensors when exceeding and / or falling below limit values ​​of likewise predetermined in the memory of the data carrier protected are stored. The environmental conditions detected can be lowered both on the environment an intended sensor, but also the other natural or artificial environment.

The contactless writable and readable data carriers, for example a transponder, which contains an electronic memory module, is attached to the article or semi-finished product, said transponder includes an electronically readable, individual identification. Manufacturing and / or type-relevant identification data, but also the data of the sensors are then stored in the memory of the transponder id. Upon reaching a next manufacturing step, but also with the beginning of a next stage transport within a production chain, or by forwarding to forwarding an electronic identification of the article or semi-finished product can be made wherein it can be checked whether preset in the chronologically preceding treatment or the preceding time transport step ambient - or environmental conditions were observed with respect to the product.

According to the invention the disk is designed as a textile special fiber and the matter to be treated is a textile fabric, knitted fabric, nonwoven or the like ma- TERIAL.

According to the invention the storage of the captured by the sensor values ​​in a data set, together with the respective date and / or the location at which the limit value is exceeded existed occurs. To detect the location, there is the possibility that the transponder or memory with a satellite-based position detection system (GPS) cooperating respectively operable to data therefrom.

In a manufacturing or transport chain compliance with prescribed manufacturing and / or ambient conditions by reading out the space on the media is checked from stage to stage in particular with changing responsibility to initiate a new stage only after that or the thing in question or the object or the product undergo a further transport or treatment decision, wherein for example, can thereby be detected under insurance legal aspect Schadensver- ursacher and the production parameters are controllable. The data from each different manufacturing locations, or by forwarding to forwarding read and controlled may be provided through the Internet or a dedicated Intranet and retrieved.

As already mentioned, there is the possibility of Einprogrammierens thresholds that are monitored by the integrated in the disk sensor.

In addition, a manufacturing or shipping code may be stored in the memory, wherein the code unlocks a defined memory area which is used to store sensor data in the area of ​​responsibility of the corresponding forwarding or manufacturing facility. Terminals for programming, such as writing new thresholds, but also to read the history can be adapted by modified software to the application and provided access rights, so that the manipulation safety is increased. Similarly, a user is assigned a different access rights. When detected threshold is exceeded there is a possibility of an internal locking of the data carrier, which is removed together with the associated product to further processing or for example, the delivery to the customer. Only a hurry individu- statement given minimum quality by authorized agencies permits subsequent release. Above procedure, for example, are used in quality assurance of the production of special textiles.

The sensor serves in particular for detection of manufacturing and / or environmental data, such as ambient humidity, ambient temperature, gaseous composition of the ambient atmosphere, air pressure, and / or the monitoring of acceleration values. In addition, sensors may be provided, which allow monitoring of the electric and / or magnetic field environment or are selective for radiation in the visible, ultraviolet and / or infrared range.

The data carrier in the manner of a textile, for example, magnetically recordable Spezialfa- dens is only destructively from the object or the goods removably connected thereto, so that an exchange of the data carrier with a fremdmanipulierten disk is not or only possible in a conspicuous manner. After an initial programming are essential, such as product-related content, namely thresholds, location and time information or the like, protected and stored unchanged or activated. In a takeover of production or transport stage to the next, the presence of an initial programming or a minimum marking requirement for the adoption of the intermediate or the goods.

Ausgestaltend is carried out on reaching a target location or transport of the final manufacturing step of reading out the stored data and the transport process to be maintained, including ambient conditions for insurance or reconstructed control purposes and recorded in a corresponding manner.

The invention will be further explained with reference to an embodiment.

A smart label transponder includes a semiconductor chip with an antenna coil, wherein additional sensors, such as an accelerometer, and a temperature sensor integrated in the semiconductor chip and the overall arrangement is part of a fabric or a textile web.

The smart label comprises a thin carrier film with vapor-deposited Antennenspu- lenstruktur and fastened there, thinned semiconductor chip is located on a support and contact strip is contacted with the antenna coil ends. With the beginning of the treatment of the textile fabric of the monitoring process uses terms to be complied with ambient temperature conditions. In the data memory on the semiconductor chip product-specific identification data are stored, wherein a programming of the temperature sensor is such that this example detects an exceeding of the maximum treatment temperature and this exceeding is stored together with the time of passing. The energy supply of the sensors and the semiconductor chip is carried out by rectifying from surrounding high-frequency energy using the Antennenspu- lenstruktur or also by inductive coupling in the LF range or capacitive coupling.
